It offers a central hub to see all available and subscribed events associated with Axis devices in the system. This allows users to quickly search for events for all connected devices, add or remove events from devices, setup events for multiple devices in batch, view status of events, and more.

Consolidated metadata support** 

This latest release also offers support for consolidated metadata to speed up forensic search investigations. Ideal for client-side forensic search operations, this processing technique significantly reduces the total amount of data to be analyzed, as metadata is only generated when objects appear or disappear in a scene. This results in Axis cameras generating up to 50 times less metadata, so forensic search can be performed up to 50 times faster.

AXIS Optimizer 5.2 also offers more ways to update AXIS License Plate Verifier list manager allowing users to reset or combine existing license plates lists when importing a new file. Additionally, it includes the publication of Software Bill of Materials (SBOM) notifications on This nested inventory list shows all components included in the software and provides necessary information that customers need to know about the software.

  • Events control panel for easy management of events 
  • Support for consolidated metadata  
  • Up to 50 times faster forensic search***  
  • More capabilities for AXIS License Plate Verifier list manager
